Warm Chicken Salad with Pears and Swiss Chard

This cozy warm chicken salad welcomes classic flavors of fall and is the perfect addition for busy weeknight meals. Between the pears, the pine nuts, and the peppers, this salad is as delicious as it is beautiful. Chicken anchors this hearty salad by providing high-quality protein and nutrients like vitamin B12 . And if you are hustling to get dinner on the table for little ones too, know that the chicken included in this salad is perfectly appropriate for tiny tummies as well so you don't have to double-up on the meal making. Lean proteins like chicken are important first foods for infants and toddlers (0-2 years old) as sources of iron, zinc, protein, and choline . Specifically, choline is a nutrient that young children need for continued brain development support – and chicken can help little ones meet their daily needs . For babies who are eating solids, try pureeing chicken with no salt added chicken broth or breast milk for an age-appropriate and nutrient-packed food. Lo
